On November 25, 2015 (the day before Thanksgiving Day), Ty was driving about 25 mph on the far right lane that was a “turn-only” lane. As Ty was approaching the intersection to turn, there was a car to the left of him that also needed to turn and maneuvered quickly into Ty’s lane with not enough space to cross over safely. Consequently, the car rear-ended the left side of Ty’s vehicle. Ty hit his knees during the accident but did not think his injury was bad enough to go to the hospital. When he started having pain a few days later on his neck, back, shoulder and his knee pain grew worse…he went straight to the doctor.
As a result of the accident, Ty sustained a right knee partial ACL tear and a left knee meniscal tear. Ty underwent conservative treatment for his injuries, but still had to undergo left knee surgery when conservative treatment did not work. Ty was totally incapacitated from working for approximately 4 months due to the accident. At that time, Ty was a 26-year-old personal trainer. The physical, financial, and emotional stress this accident caused Ty was devastating.
Ty knew Adam Handler for years through his relatives and as his family lawyer, he contacted The Case Handler for legal guidance. Not surprisingly, the Defendant claimed that the cars never made contact since it was difficult to detect damage on the Defendant’s vehicle. After thorough investigation, we successfully identified the imprint of the Defendant’s license plate on Ty’s car and won a $60,000.00 settlement award for Ty!
